    large cannon links, anyone identify the weapon?

    I have a few large cannon links that I can't identify - they have the same construction as the Mk2 20mm Hispano. shown in the photo with a standard Mk2 20mm Hispano and 25mm chaingun.The 25mm link will just fit inside the large black link. They are too small for a 35mm Oerlikon. Any thoughts?

    The left one is 20x110 Hispano suiza, the two right ones are 25x137 Oerlikon.

    I'll agree about the 25mm links, but the one on the left resembles a M24 link for the 20x139 Hispano-Suiza (M139 cannon):

    Always on the lookout for cartridge links and dummy cartridges...
